RepORT: GeORGIA AD AskeD pOLIce TO LeT HIM GO
University of Georgia athletic director Damon Evans repeatedly referred to his position at the school before his arrest on a drunken driving charge late Wednesday and asked the patrol officer if there was “anything you can do without arresting me,” according to a police report released Friday.
Also arrested with him was 28-year-old Courtney
Fuhrmann, who was charged with disorderly conduct.
In the report, the officer noted he found a “red pair of lady’s panties between (Evans’) legs.” When he asked Evans, a 40-year-old married father of two children, what he was doing with the underwear, Evans said: “She took them off and I held them because I was just trying to get her home,” according to the report.
Evans starred in a taped message played at every home football game that urges fans not to drive under the influence. “If you drink and drive, you lose,” he says.
A bleary-eyed Evans told the officer he drank two vodka martinis at a restaurant and another at a nearby bar, according to the report. The trooper said Evans later told him: “We go through life, and we all drink and jump in a car.”
‘No one cares that we won more games than anybody else. But I don’t care that no one knows it. For me, it’s something to hold on to.’
